Two Realty Deals Closed in Jig Time—
    THE T. F. GROVER home, 1120 South Fifth, has been purchased by Mr. and Mrs. E. T. Hazledine, The Hazledine home, 1019 South Center, has been sold to Michael Meyers, a scrap metal dealer, who now lives on Poplar street.

    The Grover home brought a little over $8,000. The consideration for the Hazledine home was between $6,000 and $7,000. Both sales were on a cash basis.

    The Hazledines expect to be in th e ir new home about the middle of September, which will give the Grovers time to find a house in South Bend.

    It required only a few minutes to close a deal for the Grover property. Mrs. Hazledine read in The Spectator that it was for sale. Without even waiting to finish reading the paper, Mrs. Hazledine called on Mrs. Grover. She found that John S. Ahlgren of the Buettner-Shelburne Company, and Phil Kleeman, representing a relative, had been looking a t the property.

    An offer subject to immediate acceptance was made and within a few hours after The Spectator came to the Hazledine home, negotiations had been closed for the Grover residence. Mr. Hazledine, who was consulted on the phone, did not go through the house until after an agreement of purchase had been made.

    “My wife knows more about houses than I do,” said Mr. Hazledine, “so the re would be nothing gained by me looking at residence property.” The Grover home was built by Mr. and Mrs, Scott C. Hanna. - Terre Haute Saturday Spectator September 1, 1917

Court Ruling Unmakes Long-Time Citizens
    A Supreme Court decision relative to the niaturalization of foreign-bom citizens has placed three of Terre Haute’s residents in a awkward situation. Legally, at least they are probably to be classed as being without a country, for they years ago renounced allegiance to the land of thair birth, and now under a decision of the highest legal tribunal in America , they are declared to not eo be citizens of the United States.

    These men are William and R. L. Alder and Edward T. Hazledine, all of whom have baen for many years numbered among Terre Haute’s most worthy and prominent citizens. Their present embarrasing situation comes through their failery to take out what are known as "second papers" - Terre Haute Saturday Spectator February 2, 1918

As soon as January snows make living in Indiana an unpleasant affair, the Edward T. Hazeldines plan to leave for St. Petersburg, Fla., their second home.

In fact there are as many members of their family living in that southern state as there are in Terre Haute.

The son, Kenneth, is a freshman at the University of Florida at Gainesville. He is studying to be an architect. He spent the Christmas holidays in St. Petersburg with his brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Walmsley (Margaret Hazeldine) who have recently built an attractive home on the Big Bayou of Tampa Bay.

Kenneth’s aunt, Miss Jennie Darnell, Mrs. Hazeldine’s sister, has made St. Petersburg her permanent home for years.

The Hazeldine’s daughter, lone, Mrs. Jack Thornton, and her husband and son, Jack, formerly of this city, are now living in Hollywood, 1021 North Mariposa.Terre Haute Saturday Spectator Saturday, December 31, 1927,

The E. T. Hazledines, who have been spending the winter with their son-in-law and daughter, the E. T. Walmsleys, in St. Petersburg, Fla., will arrive home next week Wednesday, April 7.

The date is an especially significant one, inasmuch as it marks the golden wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Hazledine, and the week-end following will witness a family reunion and celebration in honor of the Hazledine’s fiftieth wedding anniversary.

Jack Thornton Jr. drove up to Chicago last week-end to bring back his mother, lone Hazledine Thornton and his little sister, Taddy. lone has been tremendously busy. all this week, opening up the Hazledine home and gètting things in spic and span order for her parents' homecoming.

Ione's husband, Jack Thornton Sr., who is now on an extended business trip in the South, will join his family here for the family, reunion asf will the Hazledines other son-rin-law and daughter, Fred and Emma-Thornton. Then there will be Kenny and Jane Hazledine, of course and the family, circle will be complete with the exertion of the Walmsleys who were unable to come up from St. Petersburg at this time. The occasion will be an especially joyous one, with Mother and Dad back from a long vacation in far-away Florida, celebrating their golden wed- ing anniversary. Mr. Hazledine is also celebrating an anniversary of another kind—his fiftieth year in business, as it was in May, 1887, that he established his own business. Fred Thornton, who was crucially ill a year ago, is now in excellent health, and Emma, who has been ill during the winter, is improved. During the long period of Fred’s illness they stored their furniture, but now have their furniture out of storage and are living in an apartment at 1337 Fargo in Chicago. lone and her husband and daughter have an apartment in the same building. - Terre Haute Saturday Spectator April 3, 1937

    “It was probably preordained that I would pursue a career in some form of metalworking,” says Ted Hazledine, president of Benchmark Fabricated Steel.

    “My namesake grandfather emigrated to the U.S. in 1880 after serving an apprenticeship as a blacksmith in the forges and furnaces of the Severn River Valley of Shropshire County in West Central England. This area is regarded as one of the birthplaces of the Industrial Revolution and Coalbrookdale, my grandfather’s hometown, is the site of the first cast iron bridge in the world (now simply called the Iron Bridge), constructed in 1779. There is some evidence that my ancestors worked in the Darby Ironworks that built the bridge.”

    Edward T. Hazledine went on to found his own metal shop, the E.T. Hazledine Company in Terre Haute, Ind., in 1887. By the time Ted’s father, Kenneth, was born in 1908, the company had acquired several pieces of machinery, as well as the forges and trip hammers of the blacksmith trade.

    After his grandfather died in 1941, his father assumed ownership of the business...
